Back outta hiding and wondering if either 'eddish' http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/eddish or 'earsh' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earsh are good to go for 'arable' (?) and if also, how akin the aforesaid words are to: 'hurst' 'ash' and 'earth'

Anyway, gotta be something better out there to go alongside the Anglish Moot's 'plow(able)' for 'arable'

SPREAD THE WORD: woodwose / wahlstod / sinflood


'woodwose' - (faun)

If needed, could someone kindly eke 'woodwose' as the bypell for 'faun' on Anglish Moot /The wild man (also wildman, or "wildman of the woods", archaically woodwose or wodewose/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_man

Believed from Old English: 'wudu-wása' also lives in sundry lastnames like: wodehouse, woodhouse, woodiwiss, wudwas, and so forth...http://www.archive.org/stream/surnames00week/surnames00week_djvu.txt

It's not enough that there is already stuff like greenman, wildman and suchlike, the '-wose' ending is bewitching and one-of-a-kind. 'wodwos' in Gawain and the Green night, and 'the woses' in Tolkien's LOTR. Tinkered on More Words http://www.morewords.com/ but doesn't seem any kindred wordstuff for the 'wose' bit. There's the near-ago slang word 'wuss' but even if it's got roots in a warm furry thing, the whimp+pussy/effeminate man meaning seems most unwoodwoseilike. That seems to leave 'woozy' (feeling oozy from drink) and 'woosie' a kind of pet form/call said to sweet furry cats. Anyway, maybe our furry friends the woodwoses might also have kin in moorlands called: moorwose/moorwiss - maybe that's how the 'morris dancers' got their name (?)

'wahlstod' - (interpreter)

Said to be Old English for 'interpreter' makes sense as 'wahlstod' (welshstood / welsh-understander?) also seems to of gone on to be the name of a mate/manthrall/interpreter(?) of Hallowed Bead. Haps back then 'wahlstod' meant: the Welsh understood/stander, and Saint Dunstan: the Dane understood/stander?
Dunstand / Walstood
Dunstod /Walstan
Anyway, what would be the spelling of 'wahlstod' ( interpreter) in English now days?

'sündflut' German word for 'deluge' 'biblical flood' the meaningness of the word 'sinflood' gets broken down here: http://www.archive.org/stream/significantetymo00mitcuoft/significantetymo00mitcuoft_djvu.txt and here: http://www.myhistorybooks.org/categories.php?categoryno=20900&pageno=57 and how here: http://books.google.com/books?id=8vqm1zozD18C&pg=PA183&lpg=PA183&dq=%22sin+flood%22+etymology&source=bl&ots=JA9gov4649&sig=1g6Ahi_SDn2zmHmV6md9Fhnocuk&hl=en&ei=n9ycTv2NE5S28QPtvrGbCQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CCMQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%22sin%20flood%22%20etymology&f=false how 'sündflut' is a mismeaning from a German dance hight 'sint-vluot'

/the sharpest longbowmen from the day were kinded a good nights wink in teld rooms/ ?

/after the heat of battle a good bowman is an even better bowman after the still/dull (silence) of teld rooms (doldrums)/ ?

/camping in a tent is wonderful, but camping in a tent through a day of rain can leave those that dwell inside in the doldrums, hence all the mobilehomes, caravans and chalets rather then tents on many so-called campsites these days.../ ?

/when bad weather hits small tented rooms (tents) the doldrums (teld rooms) hit those inside/ ?
